The Angels must make some tough roster decisions
Hector Yan –
Yan is a young left-handed pitcher with a tremendous talent. Yan has a 94 to 96 mile per hour fastball, but he also throws a curve, change-up, and a split-fingered pitch. Yan had a tremendous 2019 season the best he has ever had in the minors since he was signed by the Angels out of the Dominican Republic.
Yan went 4-5 this season with a 3.39 ERA in Low Single-A Burlington. Yan had a 1.16 WHIP with 148 strikeouts in only 109 innings and opponents only hit .190 against him.
Yan had numerous strong outings this season including going five innings of shutout baseball with 10 strikeouts. He also was a part of a combined no-hitter on August 27th against Beloit. Just like Rivas it may be hard for a team to keep Yan on the roster all season being that he has not pitched above Low Single-A. However with the electric stuff Yan has a team might be willing to take a flyer on him and his potential.
